The Roman Empire has been around for hundreds of years. However, the glory of the empire has faded. Now, noble houses hire the toughest citizens they can find in order to fight for them in the streets. The winners are bound to get a seat in the Senate. But how much blood must be spilled in the meantime?
That’s what you’ll have to figure out in Gangs of Rome, a new historical miniatures skirmish game available to pre-order from Warlord Games.
From the announcement:
Inspired by the history of the great city, Gangs of Rome takes place in the shadows of the Empire where the heads of ambitious houses have gathered fighters forged hard by the streets to do their bidding and enact their schemes.
As a Dominus, the head of a house of Rome, you will seek out the most brutal of Romes criminal denizens, plying them with the promise of wealth and glory should they aid you in your plan to rise to the Senate of Rome and cast down all enemies before you.
